New Golden Dollar: For the first time in twenty years, the US Government is issuing a new "golden" (not real gold) one dollar coin to be struck at the Philadelphia and Denver mints using the new "high resolution" process. The obverse will feature Sacagawea, the Indian woman who guided the Lewis and Clark expedition, and the reverse will show the American eagle in flight. For information about the Golden Dollar, visit the US Mint Golden Dollar Internet site at http://www.usmint.gov/GoldenDollar/, and donât forget to follow the link on that page to read about Sacagawea and about Randy'L He-dow Teton the Shoshone woman who modeled for the coin.
